Default Advice needed on 6309-7290

Hi,

I need some advice on my 6309-7290. I bought it a year ago, it is supposedly all original. The lume and dial had matching patina. Over a couple of months, the second and minute hand lume began to darken significantly and become divergent from the colour of the hour hand. The dial and hour hand remain unchanged.

Should I be concerned that I may have relumed or aftermarket hands?

Havent quite figured out how to upload photos to the post.

Thanks in advance.

It could be that someone treated the minute hand for mould (usually bleach). It can work wonders at first but often the lume will go bad after a couple of months.

Thanks Uncleluck,

Here are some lume shots.
The hands seem to glow at the same intensity but they look very different in the light.
